Hamilton Township Democratic Mayoral candidate Barbara Plumeri held a kick-off small donor meet and greet yesterday at Killarney's Publick House in Hamilton.
Among the some 200 people who attended the $25 per head event were County Executive Brian Hughes, Senators Shirley Turner and Linda Greenstein, Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo and Dan Benson and several Mercer County Freeholders.
Plumeri is challenging for the mayor's seat vacated by Republican John Bencivengo who was found guilty of corruption charges late last year. Former Republican Councilwoman Kelly Yaede was tapped to fill Bencivengo's spot until the special election in November and will seek to maintain the seat in Republican hands.
Lew Candura, the veteran chair of the Morris County Democratic Committee, will retire this year and back the organization's executive director, Chip Robinson, to serve as his successor.Read More >
